As we already described in detail the tests and differences in our last newsletter, we summarize for you the most important aspects of the new certification:  

  • NOCT becomes NMOT (Nominal Module Operating Temperature)
  • Pmax, Isc, Voc are confirmed by lab measurements
  • Changed criteria for the 1500 V certification
  • New impulse voltage test: to verify the capability of the module insulation to withstand atmospheric over-voltages
  • Mechanical load with safety factor of 1.5x
  • New Ignitability test
  • Increased insulation requirements
  • Cold conditioning and Dry Heat conditioning
  • Maximum reference temperatures for all module components
  • Verification that the materials used in the module will not show creep or lose adhesion during high operational temperatures in the field
  • Terminations can withstand stresses caused by assembly or handling operations
